ATLAS – video premiere
ATLAS shows off their heavier side with their new single The Catalyst. The song takes the listener on a journey through a manic depressive process of creation. These experiences are reflected on the bands self-produced video. Next month the bands starts their touring from the Baltics with Miss May I.
”Where there’s a will there’s a way"
This is the mentality of the 5-piece modern metalcore band ATLAS, hailing from Nokia, Finland who are more than determined to make an impact on the genre. Labeling their sound as ’’NORTHCORE’ the band has already released a critically acclaimed debut EP.
After 6 years of hard work, the band has found its firm lineup with members who have dedicated themselves and their lives to the music. In that half a decade the bands sound has developed and matured to the point where it is now; a truly unique mixture of different genres and sounds.
’’Our main influences vary from contemporary metal giants such as Architects and Bring Me The Horizon to rap, pop and ambient music that make our sound a mix of heavy hitting riffs paired with catchy melodies and immersive soundscapes. Outside music we draw inspiration from the northern gloom of Finland which bleeds into the music giving our band a cold and harsh sound’’ (-Tuomas/Guitar).
The band has played around Northern Europe with bands such as Adept, Eskimo Callboy, One Morning Left and We Butter The Bread With Butter.
